Big, fast moving creature seen near Laurel Hill Turnpike

YEAR: 1984
SEASON: Fall
MONTH: November
DATE: First saturday
STATE: Pennsylvania
COUNTY: Somerset County
LOCATION DETAILS: Laurel Hill (Above the abandoned Laurel Hill Pa. Turnpike Tunnel. Nearest Road: Approximately 1/2 mile due south of Pa. Turnpike Laurel Ridge Bypass.

OBSERVED: While returning from a grassy field located off of an old DER road, I had the feeling that I was being watched.

I also noticed a stong smell of what can only be described as a cross between body odor and a wet dog.

I was facing upwind of the smell when I noticed something out of the corner of my eye, moving paralell to the DER road.

I could not get a good look at it, but it was bigger than a bear and moving faster than one.

Whatever it was, it sure was not shy about making noise moving through the dense woods.

I did not stick around long enough to look for tracks, daylight was short and all I had was a .22 rifle.

ALSO NOTICED: I have hunted in that area during all seasons for almost 20 years, I have never noticed anything else unexplained before or since that day.
OTHER WITNESSES: Hunting groundhog and squirrel
ENVIRONMENT: Small mountain in the Laurel Highlands, dense woods and no regular human habitation.
